Place Pigalle

Place Pigalle

This dive gives those in Hayes Valley who'd rather not drop rent on a bar tab a place to go. Locals love the pool table and the foosball table, and after looking around at the well-worn couches, one may wonder, "Wait, am I in a frat house?"
The Final Final

The Final Final

Its walls covered by 49ers and Giants memorabilia, the Final Final is a solid place to kick back and watch sports in the Marina, with a crowd of regulars, sports enthusiasts, and whoever else shows up to enjoy the pool table, dartboard, and free popcorn.


With nightly DJs playing good ol' rock 'n' roll, Delirium's small, black-walled back room is one of the city's coolest places when the DJs are firing on all cylinders. And with a motto like "service for the sick," we can dig it.

  • Monarch


    101 Sixth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-284-9774 The people behind the Om Records music label, Black Pancakes vinyl emporium, and other local culture outlets have taken over this two-level nightclub located along the Sixth Street corridor just south of Market. Expect a lot of house music to fill the vaguely steampunky space, decorated like a fancy, retro-futuristic Victorian parlor where brass horns sprout cephalopod chandeliers and pipes are bent into privacy screens.

  • Mr. Smith

    Mr. Smith's

    34 Seventh St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-355-9991 It's not recommended to make a meal out of a cocktail, but if you drank one of the signature concoctions at Mr. Smith's, your savory and salty receptors would be sated. The fresh ingredients - basil, cilantro, sage, house marmalades, berry jams, and jalapeño peppers - mean no margarita mix here. They really juice the limes for their 7th Street Gimlet, a medley of gin, basil, lime, agave, and chipotle. For the Sage Lady - made with Veev, an acai liqueur, and Chartreuse - the bartender will halve the lemon before your eyes. Bottled in Mason jars, the herbs, fruits, and preserves lend a homestead feel to an otherwise white-collar bar. The decor exudes parlor-room speakeasy kitsch with dark wood, exposed brick, and mood-lit elegance, suitable for smartly dressed professionals. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Novela

    662 Mission San Francisco, CA 94105

  • O

    O'Neill's Irish Pub

    747 Third St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-777-1177 Every neighborhood needs an Irish pub (it's, like, a law or something) and O'Neill's is the place to go in South Beach if you need a pint of Guinness - especially before Giants games, since the baseball stadium is conveniently located across the street.

  • The Occidental Cigar Club

    The Occidental Cigar Club

    471 Pine San Francisco, CA 94101
    415-834-0485 Perhaps back in the day places like the Occidental Cigar Club were a dime a dozen, but in today's smoke-free times, it's an anomaly. The purpose of this bar is clear - to offer downtown folk a place to puff away while sipping a single malt and watching SportsCenter. This smoker's heaven comes complete with an array of cigars for purchase in addition to its stellar whiskey and bourbon list (pours range from $9-$25). Wines by the glass are available, too, as well as a few draught beer choices. Ladies are definitely the minority here, as the sign in the bathroom correctly reflects ("Ladies, please leave the toilet seat in the proper position when finished").

  • Paragon


    701 Second St. San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-537-9020 Few ballpark-centric eateries are as inviting as Paragon, where the atmosphere is warm and friendly, the banquettes are big and comfortable, the bar offers a dozen artisan drafts, and the kitchen serves up American comfort food like braised pot roast, a ginormous Cobb salad, and butter-pecan bread pudding. The dining room is all draped, earth-toned stylishness, and the patio is a delight on balmy afternoons. But the bar is the place to be, especially between April and October, when the duck confit fries and pulled-pork sliders taste terrific with your Juan Collins and the Giants keep the crowds humming.

  • Pedro

    Pedro's Cantina

    128 King San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-896-5644 Cavernous, bright, and bustling during baseball season, Pedro's Cantina is the connected sibling of Pete's Tavern in South Beach: the two bars/restaurants share a sprawling ground-floor complex directly across the street from the stadium, so together they're a geographically ideal place to meet before or after the Giants take the field. (The daily 4-7 p.m. happy hour is nixed on game days, however.) If you're grubbing it up, Pedro's food menu sticks to meat-and-cheese basics like tacos, nachos, and quesadillas, with prices in the vicinity of $7-$15. If you're just drinking, the central bar offers eight macrobrew taps, numerous Mexican beers in the bottle, and a full bar featuring a variety of tequila specials. Pedro's is a fairly gringo establishment, so sombreros are not required - but Giants caps are enthusiastically recommended, of course. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Pete

    Pete's Tavern

    128 King San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-817-5040 Located across from AT&T Park, this massive sports bar is an easy go-to spot for pre- or post-game libations. Be warned: during baseball season, you may be met with a sea of screaming Giants fans. During the off-season, Pete's plays host to every other sport imaginable, so there's never a lack of team spirit. Huge TVs and multiple big screens hang from every wall, in almost every corner. The decor is rustic, with a horseshoe bar and cathedral ceilings that give off a farmhouse feel. Keeping with this homestead vibe, the tavern offers seasonal specialty drinks such as hot buttered rum with house batter and spicy Irish coffee with fresh cream.

  • RN74


    301 Mission San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-543-7474 The hotly awaited wine bar from Michael Mina features an impressive wine list from many countries as well as France, where you'll find the highway running through Burgundy after which the place is named. We prefer the bar menu to the dining room menu (some dishes are available on both). The stylish room is reminiscent of a train station, with a high-arched ceiling, exposed struts, and signboards mimicking train departure boards that list wines instead of destinations. An interesting cocktail list attracts crowds (and noise). Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Shine


    1337 Mission San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-252-1423 For those looking for a late-night club without the velvet ropes and exorbitant covers, Shine is your diamond in the city's rough. This little bar/dancefloor is hidden behind an unobtrusive door in a relatively inconspicuous part of SOMA. The DJs spin house and trance as the numerous disco balls dance light all over the dark walls, hardwood floors, and sparse furnishings. The TVs bleed from one animated colorful blur into the next as Mission hipsters sip mostly mixed drinks. Things might be happening here prior to 11 p.m., but it's unlikely - show up after 11:30 p.m. if you want company. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Showdown


    10 Sixth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-255-7920 The venue formerly known as the Matador - and the Arrow Bar before that - has morphed yet again. The Deco-retro wood bar and cool vintage lights are still here, however, with a handful of candlelit tables edging the small dance floor in back. And whatever subtle decor changes may occur, this li'l spot on gritty Sixth Street is always a source of sweet downtown beats, ranging from indie hip-hop, funk, and dubstep to downtempo, house, and more. Keep an ear bent their way if underground sounds are your thing. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Skool Restaurant and Bar

    1725 Alameda San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Slim


    333 11th St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-255-0333 Slim's is a midsize, brick-walled venue that hosts a variety of underground rock, metal, hip-hop, and reggae bands - and not only is it one of the few live music clubs in a neighborhood dominated by DJ discothèques, it's also one of the best places in the city for underage music fans to catch bands on the way up. There's a full bar for clubgoers over 21, plus a rear upstairs balcony with seating and tables if you want to take a load off and get away from the throngs below.

  • Sloane


    1525 Mission San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-621-7007 Located in a historic building that survived the 1906 earthquake, the recently expanded Sloane (aka Sloane Squared) has been transformed into a gorgeous cavern. The exposed brick hints at the club's past, while lavish accents of redwood paneling line the counter and dress up some of the walls. Upstairs, the mezzanine has five VIP tables and sleek, black leather sofas. On an elevated platform, the DJ spins house and dance music for the crowds down below on the main floor. At the bar, try a signature raspberry mojito or, if you're into something more adventurous, opt for a glass of champagne with a shot of Gran Centanario Rose Angel tequila.

  • Steep Brew

    450 Rhode Island St. San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Straits Cafe Singapore Restaurant

    Straits Cafe Singapore Restaurant

    845 Market San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-668-1783 You're thinking: "A lounge inside a mall? Cheesy!" Not so with Straits, a Singaporean restaurant located in the posh wing of Westfield San Francisco Centre. Once inside, the warm apricot and chartreuse hues juxtaposing the industrial-chic concrete pull you out of that bad mall lighting. The mall-facing window is dressed up with lavish curtains that circle a more private seating area, dimly lit by paper lamps and embellished with a painting of the Buddha, whose shifty eyes keep tabs on the patrons. The cocktails, some of which are half-priced during the daily happy hour, take cues from Eastern flavors, most notably a whiskey and green tea concoction in which any bite and peat from the whiskey is tempered by the tea's neutral flavor and the caffeine has a sort of Red Bull effect to send you on your merry way for tipsy shopping.

  • The Stud

    The Stud

    399 Ninth St. San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-863-6623 Although small and cramped when packed, the Stud rules over other gay clubs with some of the best local DJs, innovative club nights, wild drag queen performances, and overall atmosphere. This old SOMA standby eschews the flashy glitz of trendy new nightclubs, instead cultivating a comfortable, almost bordello-like environment with lots of warm wood surfaces and plenty of dark corners in which to canoodle with your latest date. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Supperclub San Francisco

    Supperclub San Francisco

    657 Harrison San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-348-0900 If you like Burning Man-style costumes and dance performances, but prefer sleek Euro-chic furnishings and frou-frou appetizers to chewing on dusty desert sand, Supperclub is for you. This club features multiple areas: a crimson entry bar (Le Bar Rouge) with numerous disco balls, a side room (La Chambre Noir) with communal sofa beds and stuffed animals, and the main performance space (La Salle Neige) with more sofa beds, a balcony, kitchen, and small combined runway/stage. Resident DJ Michael Anthony fills in the musical gaps on most nights, with famous guest DJs often appearing on weekends. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Tempest Bar & Restaurant

    Tempest Bar & Restaurant

    431 Natoma San Francisco, CA 94107
    415-495-1863 A no-frills hangout popular with bike messengers, neighborhood locals, and anyone who enjoys cheap drinks in an unpretentious setting, the Tempest is a friendly dive bar hidden down a dark South of Market alley. Once you've found the place and stepped through the front door, your ears will be regaled by classic rock and indie pop hits on the CD jukebox; on rare occasions, bands may even perform for little to no cover charge. The crowd usually tends to be young and casual - it's definitely a sneakers-and-jeans kinda scene, not a place for haute couture - with the occasional crusty old-timer perched near the bar. Sad news for nic fiends, though: a recent change in ownership means you can't legally smoke inside anymore. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>

  • Temple


    540 Howard San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-978-9942 The city's latest megaclub contains multiple rooms with decor that falls somewhere on the design spectrum between ancient religious sanctuary and sleek futuristic starship. The building (known as the "Zen compound") also boasts that it's the "greenest nightclub in the world," with both a sustainable restaurant, Prana, and a rooftop vegetable garden on the premises.

  • Terroir


    1116 Folsom San Francisco, CA 94103

  • Thirsty Bear Brewing Company

    Thirsty Bear Brewing Company

    661 Howard San Francisco, CA 94105
    415-974-0905 Microbrews and Spanish tapas don't seem like the most intuitive pairing, conceptually, but ThirstyBear's owner, Ron Silberstein, has made them work for more than a decade. The two-story, industrial pub and restaurant is often thronged, pulling in a regular SF crowd as well as lanyard-wearing business types who drift over from the convention center. It helps that Silberstein's beers are well made, from the lightest of the wheats to the darkest of stouts, and certified organic to boot. The tapas aren't uniformly oustanding, but the tortilla would satisfy a Castilian grandmother, the patatas bravas are always a hit, and the kitchen has a knack for seafood.

    Tres Agaves

    130 Townsend St. San Francisco, CA 94107-1919

  • Victory Hall & Parlor

  • Wish


    1539 Folsom San Francisco, CA 94103
    415-278-9474 This intimate lounge is alternately a happening DJ hotspot and a relaxed hangout with DJs spinning downtempo funk, house, and soul. Bonus: There's rarely a cover. Read more about this San Francisco bar or club >>
